“I was a cop with about 10 years on the street when I read Wambaughu0026#39;s book, and figured the movie would be terrible. I thought Altman and his crew caught both the flavor of the book and of life on the mean streets of LA dead on.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMaybe you had to have been there. I was a great Hill Street fan (still am), but it was sanitized for TV, and much less like the real thing because of needing to maintain a plot line. Life ainu0026#39;t like that, and neither was The Choir Boys.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCop humor is hard to fathom for outsiders. Cops are, in fact, a minority group anthropologically, meeting all the same criteria. Life out there doesnu0026#39;t go from A to B to C. Itu0026#39;s chaotic. So was the movie, a little. Good job of catching the feeling.”
